We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a hen weekend. It is a little bit tired & needs some tlc but rooms were a good size, beds comfy, breakfast had a good choice & the staff were lovely. If you're looking for a budget hotel close to everything I recommend this hotel.

Booked only for location and it was a one night stay as picking up relatives returning from a cruise. The hotel is superbly situated within about 800m of the Mayflower terminal in a high street with a choice of restaurants and traditional and modern pubs including a Weatherspoons next door but one. I then read the reviews by other guests... More

Spent two nights there in conjunction with a cruise we were attending. Chose the hotel due to its proximity to the harbor, Southampton centrum and it's cheap price. The hotel has a very low standard as far as rooms are concerned. No airconditioning, small and uncomfortable beds and next to no water pressure. Staff was very friendly and service-minded and...

We stayed at the Star Hotel for one Saturday night in June 2014 as part of a road trip. The location of the hotel is ok with lots of restaurants on its door step. However, the downside was there are also nightclubs and bars nearby which meant it was very noisy right into the early hours. Not sure if this... More

This hotel is dated beyond belief, dirty and expensive. The bed was very uncomfortable but generally the room was not a place you would want to be. I stayed here as the location was good but stay somewhere else and get a taxi to where you want to be. So disappointed!

In need of a total refurb. Our room (number 12) was jaded, tired and no more than you would reasonably expect in an average b & b; poor flow of water from shower, missing lampshade above the bed, old t.v. with free view box had distorted sound. Everything about this hotel is shabby, the staff were functional and the maid... More

My criteria for booking an overnight stay on 21 June was: central to the city, and an acceptable price. In this sense, a 50% hit rate could be seen as a success. We also only needed a hotel for a base to sleep in while we enjoyed a university pals reuinion. However, my brief experience of The Star is such... More

This hotel whilst quite dated (and in need of a lick or two of paint) offers large clean rooms at a reasonable price. The location is first class for anyone visiting the city centre for shopping, business or pleasure.

The awfully uncomfortable bed (very hard) and the very poor flow of water from the shower. Had booked for two nights, brought husband along for a businesstrip and we were going to stay in the area for another 3 days. The hotel looks really shabby from the outside, it improved somewhat when getting in. Really friendly staff though. The location... More

Set on the high street this has a fantastic location for all the benefits of Southampton's centre and port. There's a great cafe opposite and a Weatherspoons two doors away. As a guest you stand a good chance of being able to park at the hotel too, for a modest additional fee. A decent breakfast was offered (and accepted) in... More
